Improvements in the Training and Supply of Physics School Teachers

You are here

Aims :

To recommend strategies for increasing the supply of well-trained physics school teachers and to enhance the role of university physics departments in helping the teaching of physics in schools.

This will be met partly by objectives to :

facilitate the training of future physics teachers,

contribute to the professional development of existing school teachers,

contribute more directly to physics teaching in schools, e.g. through ‘master classes’ and reach-out laboratories, and

help apply the results of physics education research.

Methodology, results and good practices within the scope of WG4 are presented during the HOPE Annual Forum 2016.
